10 Weeks Until Symposium 2022

Posted on Posted in Symposium Update

Only 10 WEEKS left until Steampunk Symposium 2022, the immersive convention that places YOU center stage of the action. Will you be the hero to solve the Mystery of the Gold Rush Ghouls? Will you win prizes and glory in the Steampunk Olympiad? Will you be able to choose what to do from the ever expanding schedule that awaits you this March? Whatever you do, we know that it’s going to be an unforgettable experience!


Marching Forward

Currently we are on track to publish the program schedule in early March. We have been able to keep together many of the panels, workshops, and presentations that were originally planned for March 2020, and we are excited to have kept the theme of Weird West.

There are still a few rooms left, but in true Symposium fashion the host hotel is mostly full. To increase the safety of attendees, we have rebuilt the schedule to space out events and decrease crowding. On Saturday, the afternoon Devon Cream Tea will be split into two sessions to allow better spacing between tables; those who have tickets to the Tea will be contacted to pick a time slot.


COVID Safety Protocols

We are keeping a careful watch on the recent peak of Omicron variant Covid cases in Ohio and have safety plans in place for a variety of outcomes in March. At this time things look like they will be able to progress as normal toward the convention running in March. As part of our safety plan we are requiring all people present at the Symposium to wear protective masks throughout the weekend and show proof of vaccination (or a recent negative test result) when picking up their badges. The health and safety of all present at the Symposium is paramount to us; programming is being altered to meet this goal, and if closer to March it is necessary to reschedule the convention back up plans are in place.
